Second Grade

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year at Monte Vista Elementary. This is my 14th year as a second grade teacher at Monte Vista. I love the second grade curriculum and I am looking forward to sharing it with my new group of students.

I was born in California and have lived in the Murrieta Valley for over 30 years. I am also a former student of the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. 

In addition to being teacher, I am also the mother of four children. My husband is also a teacher and teaches journalism, creative writing, and 12th grade English in Temecula. In my free time I enjoy traveling, gardening, reading nonfiction books, and spending time with my wonderful family.

One of my goals as your child's teacher is to meet their various needs through multiple means of instruction. Diversifying instruction to meet your child's individual goals while meeting the learning standards is central to my curriculum. I will also strive to provide your child with an enjoyable and memorable, yet challenging education this year.

I look forward to working with you as a team to help your child be as successful as possible this school year.
